  Basin - LoveToKnow 1911
Some of the better known geological basins in England are, the London basin, a shallow trough or syncline of Tertiary, Cretaceous and Jurassic rocks; the Hampshire basin, of similar formations; and the numerous coal basins, e.g.
Strictly speaking, a structural basin is formed of rock beds which exhibit a centroclinal dip; an elongated narrow syncline or trough is not a basin.
Lakes sometimes occupy basins that have been caused by the removal in solution of some of the more soluble constituents (rock salt, andc.) in the underlying strata; occasionally lake basins have been formed directly by crustal movements.

 Drainage basin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A drainage basin is the area within the drainage basin divide (yellow outline), and drains the surface runoff and river discharge (blue lines) of a contiguous area.
Each drainage basin is separated topographically from adjacent basins by a ridge, hill or mountain, which is known as a water divide or sometimes a watershed (in those parts of the world where the drainage basin itself is not called a watershed).
drainage basin is a logical unit of focus for studying the movement of water within the hydrological cycle, because the majority of water that discharges from the basin outlet originated as precipitation falling on the basin.

 World Water Assessment Programme | Case Studies | Senegal River Basin, Guinea Mali Mauritania
The basin has three distinct parts: the upper basin, which is mountainous, the valley, and the delta, which is a source of biological diversity and wetlands.
Today, irrigation is the motor of development in the basin, notably in the valley and in the delta, due not only to improved technology, but also to the wider variety of produce grown (rice, onions, tomatoes, potatoes, sweet potatoes).
Fishing, in terms of the income of the work force that it employs, is undoubtedly the largest economic activity in the basin after agriculture, notably for populations living near the river in the valley and the delta.

 Friends of the Willunga Basin
The physical geographic boundaries to the area known as the Willunga Basin are the Sellicks Hill Range to the South and East [often referred to as the Willunga Escarpment] and the Southern slopes of the Onkaparinga Gorge to the North; the North-Easternmost point being in the vicinity of Bakers Gully.
The Willunga Basin forms part of the Fleurieu Peninsular and is often referred to as the natural "Gateway to the Fleurieu", being separated from the Southern Fleurieu by the Sellicks Hill Range.
The name "Willunga Basin" has emerged over the past ten years from being a simple geographic term defining the limits of a specific hydrological catchment area, to become a strong cultural definition of a community of rural villages south of Adelaide, the capital of South Australia.
